Special Notes:

  1. For nut lovers, stir in 1-2 cups coarsely chopped nuts with chocolate chips.
  2. Do Not over bake. Cookies should be slightly golden brown.
  3. Storing: If stacking, place wax or parchment between layers to avoid them sticking together
  4. Ovens vary. Know your oven. You might want to bake just one to test it out. I bake mine for 9 minutes max.
  5. This recipe yields about 40 cookies depending on the size you make them. You might be tempted to cut the recipe in half but I recommend making the whole recipe, baking what you need and just freezing the rest. They defrost quickly.
